A Taste of Whistler’s Food & Drink Scene

An Eclectic Mix from Casual to Gourmet

Food is essential to life, so make it good. It’s a mantra Whistler takes seriously, with over 100 restaurants, cafes and bars dishing up everything from award-winning plates to grab and go delights. Here’s a whirlwind tour. Better for your digestion to come and experience it for yourself.

Itinerary

The Farm to Fork Movement

2014 is the Year of the Family Farm. With the hyperfertile Pemberton Valley just up the road, Whistler restaurants like Araxi have taken the “eat local” in season mission to heart. Nita Lake Lodge and Creekbread pizza, the Whistler Farmer’s Market, and Olives Market in Function Junction all close the distance between farm and fork. Shorten the journey even more, take part in Pemberton’s annual Slow Food Cycle Sunday, a 50km bike ride that takes place on the third Sunday in August.

Master Mixologists and Creative Cocktails

Alta Bistro’s Scot Curry has been on a winning streak for his cocktails taking back-to-back wins in the Cocktail Competition at Cornucopia in 2012 & 2013, right alongside The Mix’s Tia Stonier. The Mallard team at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler is also getting creative with their quirky condiment cocktail series, and the seasonally-inspired drinks at the Fifty-Two 80 lounge in the Four Seasons offer a refreshing taste of summer.

Alfresco Style: Outdoor Eats and the Best of BBQ

Araxi pioneered the concept with their famous Long Table dinners, but summer’s celebratory outdoor vibe can be experienced equally at the roaming sampling picnic Feast in the Mountains, over a grill at the annual BBQ Championships, at the don’t-miss-it Mountain Top BBQ or forest-surrounded BBQ at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre

Itinerary

The Fineness of Wines

With Araxi’s Samantha Rahn winning Vancouver International Wine Festival’s Sommelier of the Year in 2013 (the first winner ever to come from outside Vancouver, and the third woman ever to take the award), the Bearfoot Bistro boasting the largest wine cellar in Western Canada, and the Grill & Vine at the Westin’s enomatic wine system, there’s no need to assume that Whistler’s casual attitude translates to its wine offerings. Add altitude, all 6000 feet of it, for an added dose of eye-candy with Whistler Blackcomb’s summer alpine Winemakers Dinners.

Cheap Eats

The frugal can get their fill in Whistler with a range of pocket friendly eateries, from El Furniture Warehouse with its $4.95 menu, new gastropub The Brickworks Public House’s $10 lunch menu, to Three Below’s $20 Dinner and a Movie deal. Foodies rate Pasta Lupino for its daily hand-crafted pasta and 21 Steps dishes up a range of sub $12 from-scratch small plates and salads. If you’re on the run, Zog’s has sustained many a working-woman and man, and the Visitor Centre offers up Sushi To Go, as does Fuji Market (both of which have been hailed as hidden gems by the sushi set.) For unbeatable breakfast or brunch, don’t look any further than The Wildwood. It’s a morning-after institution

Break for Breakfast

Everyone knows breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and Whistler has no shortage of options to fuel up for your next adventure. For a steaming cup of joe, a savoury breakfast sandwich, or a delicious baked treat, try locally owned options like the Mount Curry Coffee Company or Purebread. Elements is another Whistler classic with gourmet options and seven variations on their famous eggs benedict. For that classic diner feel, don’t miss Southside Diner in Creekside, and for late-risers La Brasserie in the village serves breakfast until 3pm.

Beer Drinkers Guide to Whistler

As the new Whistler Village Beer Festival says, “Beer in the mountains. It just feels right… to want to enjoy some fine ales under the sun with friends.” You can do that in an official festive atmosphere, Sep 11-14, or in the unofficially festive atmosphere of the patios of the Dubh Linh Gate or the Brewhouse, Garibaldi Lift Company and Dusty’s, or the Whistler Brewery, where sampling and appreciation is encouraged with tasting sized brews.
